The Benefits of Social Media for Higher Education

Comments: 2

  • One of the great things social media brings to the table for higher ed is enabling schools to engage their constituents in the digital media for school spirit, community building and retention. This is especially important in non-traditional learning environments/channels such as distance learning, military deployments and commuter-centric schools. Social media is what helps our university facilitate interactions among our students since at American Public University System (, our 100,000+ students are all online and often never have the opportunity to meet one another.

  • If we know how to use social media effectively and in a responsible way, it can greatly help us even in the field of education. Information is very important and as we all know exchanging of information is quite faster because of technology.
